Awesome Cochise! I love baby tarpon. II spend more time fishing my three weight in the Tamiami Trail canals than I do chasing eighty pounders off shore. A small tarpon on a trout rod beats everyy trout ever born in terms of fight per ounce, and none of the work of the big ones.: Nice pic, I am psyched to hit Naples now! Those golden freshwater tarpon are my favorites.

Yes Ard, she was hooked up (not on a fly) sadly did not touch that fish. Absolute beasts at that size.

I was amazed at how many tarpon are in the back waters right now. Some huge Snook as well.

The deer flies are getting really bad in my spots.

Man. I LOVE stalking tarpon on fly. It's been a few years since I hooked one, but when I retire to the Keys, I plan on bothering plenty of them. Probably little herrings like your first photo!

Those are the most fun! Seriously, catch one big one to get it out of your system, then break them off after three jumps, because after that they go deep and its like reeling in a wet doormat. The first five minutes with the big ones are great, the next forty five? Not so much. The little guys though, say three feet to eight inches? Those are a blast on light tackle. I can. catch them all day And not get tired of it. A three weight into the salt? Hell yeah! You can have the big ones, fhey are fun, but me I'm with Cochise and the same **** eating grin getting a little guy on UL tackle.

Try this as we have deer flies galore in Michigan...I had noticed that constantly I was only getting bit behind my ears by the flies, so one day simply just not wanting to get bit there, I draped a bandana over my head so it hung just ahead of my ears and over the back of my neck down to my collar.

The flies will still swarm around, yet they don't bite and that is without any repellant.
